Dec. 27, 1946 – Feb. 27, 2018

Renata was born in Germany and immigrated to Canada as a young girl with her family and grew up in Kelowna, BC.  She is survived by husband, Ernie, her “true love and best friend”, daughter Amber, son Neil, and their spouses  along with 2 cherished granddaughters.

Renata was a Registered Nurse at St. Mary’s Hospital in New Westminster.  She nursed several breast cancer patients who later paddled with AIAB as well!

She embodied the best in a lovely person.  Her joy for life brightened everyone she met. Her friends and especially her family will miss her smile, her support, her sense of fun and most of all her love.

Her crewmates remember both Renata’s support and her encouragement.  She always had a kind word and a hug!  Rest In Peace our Angel.
